Presented in the interest of completeness, not in the interest of putting "Michigan" and "top-25" within three counties of each other.

The rest of the Big Ten struggled.  Michigan State and Ohio State dropped out of the top-10, Nebraska slides into the 20s, and by virtue of not looking like the rest of the Big Ten, Wisconsin sits at 17th.

With just about everyone losing, the Big Ten has all but assured itself to be on the outside looking in this winter when the playoff is announced.  Michigan State still has an outside shot, but needs help.
